"I have used this book to teach educational leadership, and I recommend it highly to principals, professional learning specialists, and teacher leaders alike."
"Case studies and vignettes are used effectively to demonstrate authentic applications of the authors’ theoretical perspective in diverse school settings. This research will empower principals and teachers."
"This book contributes to the literature on teacher leadership with a particular focus on schoolwide excellence in teaching, learning, and assessment. The exercises are filled with solid and practical but generative ideas."
The second edition of Developing Teacher Leaders provides a chronicle of new insights gained through the implementation of our initial research and extensive work in school capacity building in schools across Australia.
Testing and re-testing our theories of teacher leadership and parallel leadership, along with the introduction of a process for school capacity building has resulted in confirmation that such work brings about school success across a range of diverse school settings. This is reflected in our refinement of the crucial Teachers as Leaders Framework.
The implementation and professional critique of the exercises has resulted in a robust revision presented in the CLASS plan – a set of exercises to assist schools build t heir teacher leadership capacity.
